DP2 Merrill - 3 Night Shots
Aug 14, 2012

Hey Everyone,

Just came back from the Brooklyn Promenade.

Wanted to share a few shots from the night: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pixelbased/sets/72157631058334574/with/7778439052/

Some notes (that I am sure many of you already know):

1. You have to shoot with a tripod. I rested it on a ledge, and even then, it's a bit shaky, so it was semi-handheld. The foveon sensor does not like this situation. There isn't an ounce of image stabilization...

2. These are standard images, no extensive editing. Raw to TIFF in SPP. A crop or two in photoshop.

3. I think the camera enhanced the scene a bit from the amount of light it did take in. Everything in these images look more vibrant than in actual life.

I'm still learning all the quirks of the Merrill. It acts differently than my DP2s. But I much prefer the daytime shooting when the sensor can really shine.
